Home » Do Cats Need Rabies Vaccines if They Are Indoors?
There are many reasons why even indoor kitties should be vaccinated for rabies. First, although rare, indoor cats have been exposed to rabies by infected animals, primarily bats, that have found their way into homes. Second, if your cat ever bites anyone, it protects you, as you can prove that your pet has been vaccinated, and may help prevent any person bitten from having to receive rabies prophylactic shots. Third, most veterinarians in an effort to protect their staff, will require their feline patients to be vaccinated as even the sweetest of cats can potentially bite when nervous or scared. Finally, there are also some cities that require that all cat residents are Rabies vaccinated.
